FMN - 2020/June, Seg.1 - Impact of Pandemics in U.S. and Global Economies - Part I

Course Overview
December 31, 2019, at midnight, we celebrated the start of a New Year! All over the world, fireworks went off to welcome a new beginning. Most of us made our resolutions, looking forward to a better year ahead, leaving the past behind, optimistic about new jobs, new opportunities, new chapters. The U.S. economy was in the longest economic expansion stage in its history, the job market was growing consistently, the impact of the expansionary fiscal policy was waning, monetary policy was historically accommodative and consumer sentiment remained high and then…COVID-19 happened, and our lives changed overnight. Dr. Robert McNab, professor of economics at Old Dominion University, Strome College of Business, discusses the impact of pandemics in U.S. and global economies.
